Cosmos of Methos is a game where you are placed behind the wheel of a Hellenik Trireme, a Phoenecian trade-ship, or a Skythian pirate ship. Nevertheless, you have equal oportunity to rule your destiny -- to become a peaceful trader or a fearsome captain. After all, was Odysseus better than you?
Despite the fact, that I took the code from windows thrown it in Linux, made minor changes , it seems that when I downloaded myself the file, windows had trouble with the CR&LF character of Linux plus the ToggleFullScreen Commands...
The first problem is simple solvable. Open the files and save them again.
The second problem, is even more simple. Comment the lines that speak about ToggleFullScreen.
OpenSource, Economy ...Constitutional Rights....
-I have re-placed because my first publication
didn't go right where I wanted- Sorry...
I think the magic word around here is that when
people use Internet Explorer all head to a
monopolium of e- and non e- commerce. Thus it
comes to a company such as Microsoft, or Sun or
anyother (do not be fool that only M$ is really bad)
who will embrace the daily transactions. Yes the
fellow is right...There is too much of free software,
of free coded lines. But also there is a huge
anarchy in the whole process of this sofware
making. What I mean... Well, think about it. We
created -as mankind- a new deal of economy. A
new aspect. The e-commerse. And yes if you ain't
got I.E. you are doomed...unless you use a decent
netscape which might the bank let you use or
unless you use Konqueror who might has plugins
to fake your identity...Sure...that is freedom we
want? Yes? Is that? I do not think.... What is going
then? On my opinion Marius should set it, in a
different basis. He should say 2 things. 1) There
must be at last a standarization. Based on the
demand? Perhaps...Based on the most productive
solutions? Perhaps... Who is responsible for that?
That is the second thing... 2)Who is going to be in
charge. But to give an answer I must turn your
views to some other aspects of our e-economy but
also our economy as we know.... How people claim
what they deserve? THey protest, they get loud in
the streets, and finally after a revolution, a war,
laws are made...and furthermore constitutions. A
constitution gives the path to set up your freedom
area. Right? Can you have justice when a king or a
dictator rules your life? Freedom? No. Result?
Constitution. Tell me one more thing, who's got
the power to build economies? People with
money... What is the money? Power. Don't tell me
about some revolutionists! Stick to the reality,
please. Follow my process. Who has control over
law? Some multinational multi-billionar companies?
(at 99%?) Yes they have. Microsoft, Sun are too
such companies. So Microsoft thrives for
goverment contracts, and Sun leaks on her
wounds. Priests the Linux. But...Linux becomes a
tool to those people. Fundamentally beyond Linux
is GPL is the licence. And what does that mean?
That there is a war. Between companies who wish
to have closed the paths to knowledge, and
people who do want to make a difference. Result?
sourceforge.net, freshmeat.net, kde.org,
gnome.org. All cool up to here. But! Microsoft has
90% of the internet users, and governments such
as India and USA run central systems. Why,
Gentlemen? Why Ladies? The answer is one.
Because those companies have trespassed the
universities' asylum! Yes in-deed. When a
company pays a university, the university has to
follow company's instructions. When something
new is invented and it is not registered at the
benefits of this company this 'good' goes wasted
or....proprietary and plugin to any windows
XP2000NT98 or Apple2010203. So my concern,
is that in the bottom line, companies have taken
the place of teacher, and of educator in general.
They instruct what should we learn and we learn it.
'The Matrix' again and again. And when that
happens, Open Source remains at those few
fanatics, who yes they do support ALSA and OSS,
they do support KDE but GNOME too. And they can
not do nothing more. Just pray that each
technology that comes up won't pass them by.
Why microsoft made us, to use the windows
systems? She did on DOS. A freely distributed OS
that became Trojan Horse. And from DOS now we
need Paladium. What is the best way to cope with
this? And make OO really a competitor? Not much.
Just to ask freedom for education once more. We
need to roll the dice, again.Perhaps we can achieve
it. Economy, people is based on laws.Law on
constitution. It's about time to set e-economy on a
new type of research. In other words, let me put it
this way the second thing.... If no one is in charge
of OO by anyway, who has set in charge a Bank to
close the door for me, just because I like to wear a
'suit' like linux? Who? Politics? Lawyers? Laws?
What laws? Even economically there is only one
fundamental rule. 'Supply and Demand'. A law that
all modern western economies -especially USA-
appreciate it. But supply means a cool and justiful
race between different products under rules.
Where is that rull that denies me to have an
identity on the modern e-world with the tools I
want? Is there written? Because I am tired, I close
up, here. My conclusion is just that we have very
good source of minds, and software. What we
need is 'protection' and 'liberation of the
knowledge through universities'. Linux and GPL
make up what unis should do long time ago,
instead of wasting money on fat or beautiful ladies
standing in the corridor of a library and sharing time
among axious students who wish to seek the
database of the university from the corridor of the
university! Pf! My /usr/share/doc is endless of
texts and help, thanx to this anarchy. So how are
we gonna make a /global/share/doc? Only this is
the weapon against proprietary software and
moreover, companies. I am angry at the fact, that
when they say that knowledge is power, they have
taken us this power. We have to pay $$ and $$
and yet we will see only a 1% of the knowledge.
And the payment goes to companies endly. Which
in return re-sell us products that we in anyway run
to the same company to buy. A non-ended loop.
While (;;). And I am asking... What is the means to
achieve Open Source?
Power to the people!
